Lovely amber color with a thick white head. Solid lacing on the glass. Fruity and floral aroma. Flavor are mostly the same with a nice smooth toffee backbone. A mild and yet tasty pint.

Kita (1348) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 8, 2015
On tap, half pint at The Argyll Arms, London. Clear deep golden color with thick creamy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of grassy and floral hops, caramel and toffee. Taste starts with light sweet caramel malt and nutty note, following is refreshing fruity and grassy with moderate bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Oh lord, incredibly smooth and easy drinking bitter...

Decent, refreshing session type bitter, with enough hops to make it very easy drinking.

A really amazing ale. Full of hop and malt flavours that leave you wanting more. An amazing session beer that can be drunk from sunrise until sunrise.

Brewfoolery (28) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Pulled a half pint at the White Horse. Honey golden clear ale with substantial white foamy head that persists. Clean lemon aroma hints on top of rich clean malt. Little persistence in the mouthfeel that allows a quick sip to follow. Bitterness persists with slight hop sweetness on the back of the tongue.
